Description : Almost half of
the total number of migrant workers in the world today are women. It is
important to acknowledge that labour migration may benefit them through
economic and socio-cultural empowerment, however, due to their dual
vulnerability as migrants and women, they are still disproportionately
exposed to a variety of risks arising from their mobility. At every
stage of their migratory experience, women migrant workers may be more
exposed to human rights violations such as discrimination, exploitation
and abuse compared to their male counterparts.
presents the approach IOM takes toward the protection and empowerment
of women migrant workers. By displaying key IOM activities in that
area, the report seeks to better inform policy makers, practitioners
and the public of the vulnerability of these women and of good
practices for the protection of their human rights throughout the
labour migration cycle.
